for as long as i can remember, odin’s favorite meal has been beans and rice and cheese and kale. and i think it’s not just because it’s covered in three types of yummy dairy ( cheese, sour cream and butter ). and it’s certainly not because of its association with The Dog Food Burrito Incident
rather, i think it shows the power of early experiences of a good meal combined with fond memories of friends, as it was a frequent lunch dish at the local walforf school. all the kids loved the hot meal made from scratch with organic ingredients by Jim The Cook.
don’t get me wrong, mac and cheese and pizza are still on his top five list but i think his love of beans and rice and cheese and kale with last a long time.
